Asphalt & asphalt fiberglass shingles

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are the most common residential roofing material.

Though traditional names are still used interchangeable, today's roofing shingles are technically known as asphalt fiberglass shingles. These shingles have a fiberglass mat embedded in them to improve strength and tear resistance.

Asphalt shingles are the most popular type of roofing material for homes because they're affordable, easy to install, durable, and available in a wide variety of colors. Premium grades of "laminated" asphalt fiberglass shingles are typically warrantied for 50 years.

Clay & concrete tile roofing

Clay Tile

Tile roofs are most common with Spanish style architecture, but they can be used for a variety of purposes.

Clay and concrete tile roofing are generally paired together because of the similarities in installation. These tiles are designed to either overlap or interlock with other tiles to form the finished roof.

Clay and concrete tiles do have some limitations when it comes to climate, and they are not a great fit for areas with frequent, heavy rains or consistently cold temperatures.

Composite Roofing

Composite Tile

Composite shingles carry some of the industry’s longest warranties.

Composite roofing is a phrase that applies to several different types of roofing, as it simply means that several different materials were used in the manufacturing process. This is common with asphalt shingles in particular, as the quality of modern shingles has improved with composite techniques.

Another common composite roof is a simulated roofing slate that is made from resins and from rubber compounds extracted from reclaimed tires. This material recreates the appearance of a slate roof with excellent longevity and a lower installed price.

Metal roofing

Metal Tile

There are a wide variety of metal roofing styles available for residential and commercial purposes.

Metal roofing is a broad category that includes both factory-formed and finished roofing panels as well as roofing panels that are cut and formed at the building site. Metal roofing has a long history of use on houses, farm structures, and commercial buildings.

The main limitation of metal roofing is that it can't be used on complex or curved roofs. However, metal roofs can usually installed directly over a worn-out older roof without tearing off the old roofing material, saving time and money.

Slate roofing

Slate Tile

Slate is king of roofing materials but finding someone who can install or repair it may be a challenge.

Slate roofing is expensive to manufacture and tricky to install, which is why this "stone" roof is among the most expensive roofing materials available. However, slate is an extremely high quality material that can last for 75 years or more when properly installed and maintained.

Most roofing slate used in the U.S. comes from slate deposits in Vermont and Pennsylvania. Although it can be a big investment, a slate roof will give your home a unique, beautiful, and long lasting addition.
